Achieve Functional Safety for Automotive and Digital Ecosystems using MIPI CSE

Today, the automotive industry is experiencing an advanced evolution which demands need for an ever-increasing bit-depths, frame rates, camera and display resolutions, and most significantly functional safety. To address these challenges and to support future architectures, the MIPI Alliance developed MIPI Automotive SerDes Solutions (MASS)  which is an end-to-end framework for connecting sensors, cameras, displays and many other industry standardized protocols with functional safety and security. In this blog we will review the features and nuances of MIPI CSE™ (Camera Service Extension) one of the key components in the MASS connectivity framework, and explain how Synopsys Verification IP (VIP) for MIPI solutions provide a comprehensive set of methodology, verification and productivity features to support these protocols.

Synopsys 10BaseT1-S VIP for your Automotive SoCs

10BASE-T1S specification is targeted for Automotive industry, developed with an objective to achieve collision free, deterministic transmission on a multi-drop network. Automotive applications require deterministic low-latency communication and do not need high data rates. 10BaseT1S protocol is used for sensor and actuator signaling. It allows the integration of diverse sensors into an automotive-Ethernet system and opens the door for new opportunities in Ethernet communication. The 10Base-T1S is a part of IEEE 802.3cg standard that supports data rates up to 10 Mbps over a single twisted pair for networks up to 25 meters.
